Milestone Society Repository
This repository site holds extracts of the Society's central records of over 25,000 milestones, boundary markers, fingerposts, crosses, AA Signs and tollhouses throughout the UK and associated reference photographs that can be viewed as maps in Google Earth or spreadsheets in Microsoft Excel and searched on-line.
Google Earth maps can be downloaded via the Google Earth Maps menu option and Excel datasheets via the Spreadsheets menu option. Under the menu option Search, there are a number of options to search the repository for features of interest.
The site has recently been updated with a new layout and the introduction of the on-line search facilities.
Repository information is updated approximately quarterly from the central records. New and replacement repository photographs are installed on an on-going basis following moderation. If you downloaded some Google Earth map files a while ago, you should download the latest version because maps files on your computer are not updated automatically.
If you have a new or more recent photograph of a feature, please share it with us via the Submit a Photograph menu option.
If you have discovered a new feature or some of our information is incorrect, please tell us about it via the Report a Change menu option.
We hope you will enjoy spotting your local features and that you will use this site as a tool to inform your local Conservation and Highways Officers, parish councils, local enthusiasts, to spread the word, to educate and to aid conservation and restoration, or for planning Highways Heritage Walks.
